Yuri lowenthal, a voice actor best known for his role as Peter Parker in the Insomniac Games video games, was also the lead actor in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the 2003 Ubisoft game. And it will be again in the remake.
“It was one of the greatest honors of my life, go back to a role that I liked so much and that I thought I already had in the rear-view mirror. That they wanted to remake 15 years later and cast me, instead of a younger and more popular actor, was an honor.“.
About 20 years ago, Lowenthal recorded his lines for the game in just three or five sessions, but he did it in the same study as his partner, Joanna Wasick (Farah), which favored the chemistry between them.
For the remake, things have changed a lot, and now, in addition to his voice, he has participated in motion capture, next to Supinder Wraich, Farah’s new actress, and with “a lot of actors who acted as if we were filming a movie or a play. I think that brought something special to the remake“.
“On this occasion, I have had the opportunity to literally put myself in his shoes. I was able to rewind time and see if I could do better“.
Yesterday, the Ubisoft team recalled that Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake is still in development. The game is dated for the next fiscal year, in 2022 or early 2023, after long delays motivated by user feedback.
“Honestly, I can’t say anything but good things about the experience. I love the new director, we were able to keep all of Jordan Mechner’s brilliant lines and make them better for the game. “
“I’m hoping people can finally play it. I know it’s been a tough post-production, but I’m really excitedLowenthal said.
Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake is expected sometime in 2022, on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with a major facelift, as fans harshly criticized the game’s graphics. And of course, we will hear Yuri Lowenthal also in the sequel to Spider-Man, one of the most successful sagas on PlayStation.
